088 - Curiosities of the Civil War

I'm a big fan of history.  I enjoy historic accounts and learning from the past.  I hate historical fiction.  It has nothing to do with history and probably confuses people more than helps them understand it.  This book was excellent though because it was as sensational as a fiction book, but as true as real history.  Garrison did an excellent job of retelling plenty of short stories about the Civil War.  Many were quite interesting.

I also loved the readability of this book.  I could pick it up, read a story and put it back down.  Then later I could come back, start a totally different story and read through it in one sitting.  It was an excellent quality considering I like most people am fairly busy.  I would recommend this book for anyone who loves history or loves historic fiction.  The history buff will love the interesting short stories, the fiction reader will love the stories.

I'm also supposed to let you know that I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for a fair and honest review.
